Just a few more finds to go :)
This sweater vest, I got for $3.80 at Salvos. I like that the neutral color goes with everything, yet if you enlarge it you can see all the fun little colorful specks throughout the yarn (they remind me of cupcake sprinkles:). I'm thinking this will be perfect with my new tan pants.
I found this lil' vintage sweater at Salvos as well for $3. How sweet is the embroidery and that collar?!
I also found the vintage "pale mauve" tights for $1. The color goes so well with the sweater's embroidered flowers and you've gotta love the vintage packaging.
This vintage mohair skirt is another favorite recent find for $2.70 at the New To You thrift. It just has that high quality garment feel to it and I think the accompanying suede belt is so cool, the way it's two belts but one belt and the colors are great too.
I like the skirt paired with the above sweater. That's actually what I wore out on my birthday, though only for a short while, so of course I never got a chance to take pictures. I'll have to wear it again sometime and document.
I was pretty excited to find these vintage leather t-strap granny comfort shoes for $3 at Salvos as well. I like the simple moccasin-like detailing on the tops, and like my woven oxfords, I think I'll be able to wear these with so many different things.
The fabric under the shoes is actually a dark navy floral (you can see this and the fact that it's corduroy when enlarged). It's a tiny sneak peek at a reconstruction project I have yet to start, but I'm pretty excited about it. After I've had a chance to dust off the old sewing machine and figure out how to use it again (it's been awhile, I'm sure the manual will be involved) you will hopefully be seeing more of this.
A couple of white lacy tops, $4 each from Goodwill. I've mentioned being into the white lacy stuff lately and I think these will be nice to have going into Spring.
Speaking of Spring, this vintage silky cream top with pearly buttons will be perfect for layering and for wearing on it's own when the weather gets hot.
The white porcelain birds in the back, came from Goodwill a couple of years ago. I found the wee one in front at Sacks for 50 cents recently and brought him home to join the flock. They seem to like hanging out with my white unicorn bookend too ;)
Ah the clover paraphernalia, it is beginning to add up. The sweet lil' vase was a non-thrifted gift to Clover from Grandma and the teacup in back was thrifted and gifted by my sister-in-law. I found the matching vintage teacup and saucer at Goodwill for $2 and of course could not resist.
Salvation Army, $1.50.... hey, the kid's gotta wear something on St. Patty's Day ;)
